The Real Thing: Essays on Making in the Modern World by Tanya Harrod, £20
Over thirty years, Tanya Harrod has written on craft for newspapers, magazines, and journals. As these essays show, there are no boundaries in her vision: art is considered in the light of craft, and craft in the light of art; design is present too – developing and sometimes separating from craft and art.
Intimate: Jo Pond, £10
Making & Drawing by Kyra Cane, £30
Makers across all disciplines draw in some form or another, but often for diverse reasons, and using very different methods. This lavishly illustrated and thoughtfully constructed book sheds new light on contemporary artists' practice. It is an essential read for visual arts students, artists, and anyone who wants to know more about the secret stories behind the creation of these works.
